What is Tetrathlon?

Tetrathlon is the big brother of Minimus. It is aimed at those aged 12+.. Tetrathlon has 4 phases - Run, Swim, Shoot & XC Ride. See table below to see the different competition requirements. You can compete in Tetrathlon even if you have never participated in Minimus..

When & Where?

Tetrathlon takes place over 2 days August 24th & 25th @ Tattersalls.  

Must I have my own gun?

No you don't need your own gun. The club have 4 rifles for Juniors and 3 Pistols for Seniors. Our wonderful shooting coach Michael Essane will help you select the gun that suits you best during your training sessions. If you do have your own gun, you can of course use it once you have the necessary permits but the gun can only be used by you.

How is it Scored?

  1. The XC is scored differently to a Hunter Trial or ODE. You start off with 1400 points and then points are deducted for any penalties you have - eg 60 penalties for a refusal. You dont lose all your points for a fall - you get 250 penalties at the fence you fall at and penalties for every unjumped fence after - which means you get to keep all points you had scored before you fell.You keep some points if you complete even part of the slip rail & gate.
  2. For swimming you get points for every metre of the pool that you swim.
  3. In the running phase there is a ready reckoner that coverts your run time into points.
  4. For the shooting phase you will be given 2 target cards that you will shoot at. Whichever target line you are closest to earns you the points for this line. All points on your card are then multiplied by 10 to get your score. There are 1000 valuable points available for this phase.
  5. Your 4 scores from each phase are added together. The top 3 overall scores on your team count. There are individual and team prizes available. 

What aged must I be?

You must be Aged 12 or above. To compete in Junior Tetrathlon you must be Under 15 on Jan 1st and Senior Tetrathletes are Aged 15+. It is possible to compete in your last year of Minimus and then compete in Junior Tetrathlon in the same year provided you are competent in all 4 phases and aged 12 with a C test.
